Institute of Geologists of Ireland

IGI was formed in 1999 in order to promote the geosciences in Ireland and to represent the professional interests of its members. Membership is open to all practising geoscientists who meet the required standards of qualification and experience, and the IGI operates with the support of all the major geoscience based technical societies.

The IGI also recognises the importance of promoting the status and use of geology and geoscience in industry and in the community in general. Among the ways this can be achieved are in the responsible development of our natural resources, in development of our infrastructure and in the extension of academic knowledge.



The International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG)

The International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG), founded in 2012, is a multidisciplinary scientific platform for widening awareness and discussion of ethical issues in the geosciences, and the ethical, social and cultural implications of Earth science education, research and practice.
